Spicy BLT Avocado Toast

Say it with me, Spicy BLT Avocado Toast. Perhaps I should start off by saying that I did not think I liked avocado for the longest time. I know, I know.  What type of self-respecting southern Californian does not like avocado?  I swear I did not.  Boy, I have never been so happy to prove myself wrong.

Spicy Orange Beef

Spicy orange beef is a delicious and easy stir-fry dish.  It can be paired with rice or noodles, but personally, I love it by itself.  This dish can be made in a wok or 12-inch skillet.

Roasted Peking Chicken Breasts

Roasted Peking Chicken breast is a new recipe to help me in my quest to expand my culinary horizons. When I look for easy, delicious recipes, I cracked open my copy of The All New Good Housekeeping Cookbook by Susan Westmoreland. First off, I still love this cookbook. It was first published on December 31, 2001. My copy is falling apart at the spine. Consequently, I bought a slightly used copy from eBay. Oddly enough, I am still using the tattered copy.

Marinated Green Beens

he Special of the Week is Marinated Green Beans.  My impartation for this dish comes from Whole Foods Market. In the deli, they sell a similar dish which I absolutely have love!  Unfortunately for me, my local Whole Foods isn’t exactly local. Consequently, I decided to give try my hand at making this dish.
